Moveable Houses

Most of the buildings on the mountain were winch houses. Each had about five or six winches that would raise or lower workers.

Most of the winch houses also had 5-foot-high (1.5-meter-high) models of the faces inside so workers could envision what they were carving. "Face-to-face with granite all day long, they might not be able to see the big picture," says Mount Rushmore historian Amy Bracewell.
